Publix Penny Item

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 12/21 or Thursday 12/22, is:

Publix Coffee

Just a tip – this is the number one item needed by most homeless shelters.

You can get the Publix Penny item with any purchase that is $10 or more before coupons. Most stores will require the penny item coupon found somewhere in your Wednesday or Thursday paper.

The Penny Item is for one day only, and will be the day that the ad starts in your area. This is Wednesday for all of SC and AL, and parts of GA, or Thursday for Northern GA.

      I didn’t realize that. I will have to start donating some.

        What is it?

          Your local paper will have a publix coupon for a penny item. It is different every week, and you have to make a purchase of $10 or more to use it.

          • rose

            Is Fla. included?

    • Scorpiolcp

      Depending on the area you live, you may or may not need the coupon for the penny item. Coffee is used a lot in the winter time, so is hot chocolate.

      Coffee is a huge food bank need.  This is a wonderful thing to share with those in need!

    • Gromit

      Are the receipts showing the credit as coffee?  Some people have reported getting Publix pasta sauce (which was last year’s item this date).  The receipt will show the planned/intended item, even if the store has run out and substituted another item.

    • I read on i heart publix dot com that the penny item was pasta sauce. BTW is it that days paper? And do I have to have the coupon?

    • Reniors Moments

      Depending on which store I go to (Marietta, GA.) in a 5 mile radius (4 Publix stores) they could all have something different. Some require a coupon, some give you one at customer service by simply asking and some just tell you to grab the item off the shelf and tell the cashier. Weird. Anyone else have this happen? I hope I can snap some coffee for charity and my husband.

    • Niki

      Glad for note Fl does not participate – I was looking for  the past two weeks and thought I was crazy. 

    • Kathyq57

      I have looked for the penny item coupon in the paper both Wed. and Thursday and did not see it? I am getting a local paper that is just for my county. Is this going to be in the larger AJC paper? Or a sale paper put out by Publix?

    • Southern Dad

      This coupon is in the AJC but it is also in just about all the smaller papers.  This coupon is a black and white printed in text.  My local paper the Walton Tribune usually puts it on the second page.
